I was at this show and it was sublime. Back when we made good use of cassettes, I would listen to the last three songs on side one (of the tape) First Set and go to sleep by it. FOR YEARS!!!
"Row Jimmy", "Masterpiece", "Built To Last". I can not think of three more soothing songs to nod off to. Thanks, Brent and the Boys.

Great show, great sound quality. Unfortunately, the Left and Right is switched, with Brent coming out of the Left speaker. Just imagine that you're behind the stage...

Subject: Five Stars
This tour ended for me at the Cal Expo...I had to go back east for school...now I know what I missed.

I give 4 stars often...I'm such a sucker for this band...but not 5.

This show deserves 5...meeting all criteria.

Everything was 'smoot like a rapsody' this night at the Greek. The Dead painted a masterpiece. One of the finest of 89.

I concur with the last fellow. This show doesn't rock, it doesn't shred, it's better than that, it's MAGIC. The Aiko is DEFINITELY my favorite from the modern era, and the crowd in the matrix agrees wholeheartedly. Jerry has a lead in looks like rain that gives new meaning to lightnin' giving berth. The Terrapin, bar none, is the best I've ever heard. It bubbles up s-l-o-w-l-y, and the boys show no signs of being in any kind of a hurry. And as they start to get going, brent's playing this sound on the B3 that sounds like an octopus playing the keys of an underwater pipe organ with the bones of pirate. It's fucking unreal, and I've never heard that sound again. Trust me, the Terrapin is super trippy and you need to hear it. Another huge highlight is the crowd realizing that Crazy Fingers is materializing out of space. It'll send chills up your spine, and again, the boys are in no hurry to start singing, they take their time with the intro, and it's pure magic. This show is just not from this realm, and although everybody rages about the following night (which is great, too) this is the show of the run, and I've searched high and low to find a show from 89 that matches the magic that was in the Theatre that day. I still haven't found anything that compares. Once they became senior citizens, they didn't play two encores for the hell of it. Everyone was getting off this day. Get the discs, you'll be glad.

This show is extremely solid from start to finish, with excellent sound quality. Some highlights include killer guitar lines on Looks Like Rain, very tight Terrapin, sweet Crazy Fingers. I can't imagine a much better show from this era.
